Irish artists representing various literary forms will join academics in discussion on the artistic legacy of the Revival. The playwright Marina Carr, poet Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill and novelist Jennifer Johnston will discuss the influence of the Revival on their work and the place of the artist in Ireland after independence.
